Reader Offers to Pay for CODOH Ads in RIC Anchor

George Bissell, Editor-in-Chief
The Anchor
Rhode Island College
Providence, Rhode Island
editorinchief@anchorweb.org

Dear Mr Bissell,

I would like to thank you and congratulate you for your moral courage and intellectual honesty in publishing the advertisement placed in The Anchor by Bradley Smith. The more so that you almost certainly are not personally in sympathy with the position taken by Inconvenient History. (Please do not respond to that: I do not wish or expect you to and your view is none of my business.)
It is very difficult for people in a position such as yours to go against what Norman Finkelstein has called The Holocaust Industry; they use the weapons of insult and vilification to suppress any questioning of their own position and any independent research that may come to alternative conclusions.
If you have a moment to spare please take a look at an article of Bradley Smith's The Irrational Vocabulary of the American Professorial Class with Regard to the Holocaust Question
Could you be kind enough to tell me the cost of this advert in The Anchor? I would like to pay for a few insertions myself.
With warmest regards
(Name withheld by Editor)

EDITOR OF RIC ANCHOR STANDS UP F0R THE RIGHT TO A FREE PRESS

Hello Bradley,
I am responding to your complaint about the advertisement "Inconvenient History: The Power of Taboo," that ran in the last issue of The Anchor that came out on March 10. We have not had an issue come out since then because of Spring Break and our conference so no issues have passed since the advertisement last ran. Our ads manager made a mistake deciding to "pull the ad". He took this action without my knowledge and without my approval. The advertisement will run in The Anchor as long as you are willing to pay for it. We are a forum for free expression and the exchange of ideas, meaning that we will not censor any of our content. Our ads manager made a mistake and has been re-assigned. The Anchor would be willing to run the ad again as long as your organization is willing to pay for it.
I hope this clears everything up and I thank you for bringing this situation to my attention. I was not aware that this action had been taken by my ads manager.
If you have any questions, let me know.

THE ISSUE OF FREE INQUIRY AT RHODE ISLAND COLLEGE

George Bissell, Editor-in-Chief
The Anchor
Rhode Island College
Providence, Rhode Island
editorinchief@anchorweb.org

21 March 2012

Mr. Bissel:

Earlier this month we submitted a print ad to run in The Anchor that read: "Inconvenient History: The Power of Taboo," along with a URL that leads to the Website of Inconvenient History: A Quarterly Journal for Free Historical Inquiry. The ad appeared one time in The Anchor, but was then suppressed because of a "reaction" from a professor or someone representing a special interest on your campus. We have no other information.

The Spring 2012 issue of Inconvenient History includes:

Editorial: Bookburning in the Style of 2011
Resistance Is Obligation
Ritual Defamation: A Contemporary Academic Example
Stephen F. Pinter, An Early Revisionist
A Postcard from Treblinka
Review: The Wandering Who
The Palestinians as an "Invented People"
Relegation--A Formula for Blowback

What special interest at RIC would be invested in suppressing access to such information by RIC students? Perhaps you should ask those who are presenting the Belfer First Step Workshop on the Holocaust at RIC this week. It is certain that The Workshop will represent the demonstrably problematic perspective on the history of that fragment of World War ll referred to as "Holocaust." It is a given that nothing presented at such an event can be questioned publicly.

Should it not be different with The Anchor? Is it not the ideal of journalism, of a free press, to allow and even to encourage a free exchange of ideas? You may not think so.

Still, I understand you are in a difficult situation. You would have to stand alone against the entire faculty and administration of Rhode Island College if you were to try to allow an ad from Inconvenient History to run in The Anchor.

Sincerely,

Bradley Smith

THE ISSUE OF FREE INQUIRY AT U NORTHERN COLORADO

Benjamin Welch, Editor-in-Chief -
The UNC Mirror
University of Northern Colorado

Dear Mr. Welch:

I would like you to know that we very much appreciate the fact that the UNC Mirror has agreed to run our announcement for "Inconvenient History: The Power of Taboo." Clicking on the link your readers are taken to the Website of "Inconvenient History: A Quarterly Journal for Free Historical Inquiry."

The Spring 2012 issue includes:

Editorial: Bookburning in the Style of 2011
Resistance Is Obligation
Ritual Defamation: A Contemporary Academic Example
Stephen F. Pinter An Early Revisionist
A Postcard from Treblinka
Review: The Wandering Who
The Palestinians as an "Invented People"
Relegation A Formula for Blowback

We advocate a free exchange of ideas about a series of historical questions that are taboo with the American professoriate across the nation. Example: I doubt that there is one academic at U Northern Colorado who openly supports a free exchange of ideas with regard to Holocaust orthodoxy. Or one academic who will encourage, or even allow, such a free exchange of ideas to take place on this matter in his/her classroom,

All this being so, I understand that you are in a difficult situation. Still, we encourage the UNC Mirror to continue to support the right to free inquiry against the opposition of UNC academics and administration. And, I should add, the opposition of a number of special-interest organizations on and off-campus that you may hear from.

Sincerely,

Bradley Smith

PS: I understand I might be wrong about any particular of the above. If I am, please tell me where and I will acknowledge my error publicly.

Do you want to talk about it?
You can reach me at bradley1930@yahoo.com

"Self-Hating" Historiographer Dead at 77

Peter Novick, a (non-practicing) Jewish professor at the University of Chicago, wrote the ground-breaking (and earth-shaking) The Holocaust in American Life in 1999. With insight massively confirmed in the 13 years since its publication, Novick delineated how that group of events, imagined and real, now packaged under the rubric of "the Holocaust" acquired outsize influence in American discourse among both Jews and non-Jews alike.

He explored some of the reasons for this development, identifying the promotion of Israeli aggression as but one of the nefarious undertakings buttressed by the worship and enforcement of Holocaust mythology.

The New York Times's Dennis Hevesi (brother of Holocaust abuser Alan Hevesi) does an impressive job of reviewing this savant's contributions in this article, whose many links do not include any to the book, or a site on which one might purchase the book.
